Proven Innocent” centered around a legal team who worked at a wrongful conviction firm.

James, Meg Thalken, and Grace Fahey.

David Elliot was the writer and executive producer on the project, while “Empire” co-creator Danny Strong and Stacy Greenberg also executive produced. The show was produced by Danny Strong Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television.

This season, Fox also canceled freshman drama “The Passage” and comedy “The Cool Kids,” while “Lethal Weapon” and “Star” were both canceled after three seasons. The network has renewed “Empire,” “9-1-1,” “The Resident,” “Family Guy,” “Last Man Standing,” “Bob’s Burgers” and “The Simpsons.” New series orders for the 2019-20 television season include dramas “Deputy,” “Next,” “Prodigal Son” and the Untitled Annie Weisman/Jason Katims series, live-action comedy “Outmatched” and animated comedies “Duncanville,” “The Great North” and “Bless the Harts.”
